43/43 Sad if it is mostly Americans that only got half right as the average. Shows how little this country recalls its own history. We have the a crap load of information at our fingertips compared to other generations, and are more ignorant and clueless than any other, quite sad.

Firstly, we are not "more ignorant than any other" generation. That's ridiculous. Previous generations were so enlightened that they denied women, gay people, and minorities basic human rights. Secondly, why is it so damning if someone can't pick one bourgeois white guy apart from 40 others? I learned all about James Madison...the Federalist Papers, the Constitution, the War of 1812, etc., etc. Why does it matter that I missed his picture? It's really a trivial matter. Get over yourself.

Show me one instance where it specifically said a person was either fired or denied housing. Where does it say it? If not, you can't prove it, therefore your argument is null & void. It's like playing the race card when you have zero evidence of racism...it's a good excuse for when things don't go your way.

Have to agree with jmellor. Where are you getting this from, other than nostalgia and the mythology of better days gone by? This generation of Americans are among the most informed, educated, enlightened people to ever walk the Earth. I know at least half of you reading this comment just bust out laughing... but it IS true. Sure there are ignorant Americans today, but they are no more ignorant and no greater in frequency than any place else in the world. Nor are they more ignorant/greater in number than at any point in history. Not everyone in the past was Thomas Jefferson.

Also, not being able to recognize a picture of McKinley doesn't exactly make you exceptionally ignorant.

Then again, a much smaller number of Americans today know how to saddle a horse, spin cloth, make soap, etc. Much of the knowledge of yesteryear was of a more practical nature. (Plus, they had a lot fewer presidents to remember!)

I wasn't disagreeing with your original statement, I was just saying that the knowledge of the "good 'ol days" was of a different kind.Their knowledge was more about providing food and shelter. They didn't have time to go beyond the basics of life.

Especially know in the era of 24 hour news and how much station dissect him and everything he does, and not to mention it's white guy, white guy, white guy, white guy, white guy, black guy, white guy, white guy, white guy, he's not exactly hard to pick out in this crowd...

I don't understand why people cheat on these quizzes. It skews the percentages for the rest of us. I can maybe see trying to look up the correct spelling when you know the answer but can't spell it, but looking up all the answers you don't know just to say you got 100% doesn't make sense to me. Why not just retake the quiz a few times until you know the answers and actually deserve that 100%?

Why? There is no Obama International Airport, no Obama Space Center, no Obama Center for the Performing Arts, Obama's likeness isn't on any of our money, there haven't been numerous movies and documentaries made about him (yet), and many of us are old enough to remember where we were when we first heard the news that President Kennedy was shot. JFK's assassination made him an icon. Those events are forever etched in our brains just as 9-11 is for younger generations. And perhaps it's merely due to something as simple as some people not being able to spell Obama.

If you want to score high, remember that: Portraits generally mean 1790s-1820s. Black and white photos go from the 1820s to 1960s-ish. Color photos come after the 1970s generally.

What they wear around their necks is even more telling. The earliest ones wore cravats or neck cloths. Bow ties were grouped together in the mid-1800s,, and modern presidents wear neck ties. Not too sure what McKinley is wearing around his neck. Whatever it is, apparently it was bad luck.

Way to go, close-minded Gamer! You view everything as an insult when it comes to Trump. Savannah was simply pointing out that Trump's photo was the only unofficial one (and on that note close-up). The only difference to be seen between Obama and everyone else is the skin color, which white supremacists and people like you view as "abnormal".... :/

I just suddenly remembered the names now and not just randomly naming them. (Last president then was Clinton). I mostly got the younger ones as the old paintings confuse me.
